Senator Hatlie W. Caraway, has called for a restoration of confidence and faith in the soundless of Amjrica. Through the jDen',»Jcralic na- lonal publicity bureau the only w=ninn now silting in the United States senate made one of lier rare pi;blic statements in whlcli ;he appraised the economic slliin- ion, criticized the leadership of lip administration, and predicted t Democratic victory In November. Her remarks were received with considerable interest here because ;he has just demonstrated she is a :olltical fcrce to be reckoned witti. Appointed to nil the vacancy caused by her husband's death, •he took little part in senate deliberations at the last session of congress. But this summer stie went back to Arkansas to campaign for the senatorial nomination. Her friends were dubious of her chances, but Senator Huey Long loaded trucks with amplifiers and campaign literature nnd helped her carry the fight to all corners of the state. They were successful. There was a new ring of authority in her words as she expounded what she conceived to be the position of her party: "I want a restoration of confidence in this country. I want a man who Is a real American at the helm. This Is not the time for great expenditure of mor.ey. The people are awake and are not jolng to be fooled by the old campaign tricks. They have suffered too miicli from the last years of Republican control.

It left no doubt' us to Coolldgc.'.s belief that Republican victory Ls highly desirable. When Coplldge said Ills succe.TSDr should be reelectid "for what lie has done and for what he has pre- -ventcd.'' he satisfied the most. demanding of the Hoover inner circle. Some of these have Inwardly grieved over ll'.e attitude Coolldje has hitherto shown toward the present muster of the While House. They no'.ed that in his previous article last spilng favoring the president's rcnotnlnatlon Coolidge based Ills position on grounr's of party duty and omitted glowing praise of Hoover. There were many stage whispers among Hoover Intimates four years ago over the attitude of Coolidge. They were especially aggrieved because [hey wcfc not able, so the' satd, to ascertain whether Coolklgc was out of the race (or nom'lna- tion. One ol tliem said Hoover did not know until he was nominated what, pssltkm Ccoiide; would take. Quarrel Is Denied, HOLLYWOOD, Cnl, Sept.
